    First off, thank God that Bachalo is gone. The art was actually interesting and enjoyable to look at. It wasn't awesome or over the top, but it was a tremendous improvement over the disturbingly overlapping images that Bachalo cursed us with in the last arc. Read Full Review

    A nice stand-alone X-Men story that re-establishes Jubilee's place in the X-universe and tells a jaunty tale of Young Charles Xavier in Africa. Read Full Review

    I've always been a big fan of Prof. X, so it should go without saying that I really enjoyed this one. He's always had a great relationship with Jubes(there was an issue of Uncanny right after the X-Cutioner's Song that really hammered that home), so it was great to see these two characters who kind of fell off the map in the 2000's having a nice little heart to heart. If you're not a fan of Xavier, you probably wouldn't care to read about his youthful adventures. But for me? This was a breath of fresh air. Read Full Review

    It's a shame "Curse of the Mutants" couldn't have been laid to rest. The fallout of that story is being handled much more effectively in the Wolverine and Jubilee mini-series. It remains to be seen whether Chris Yost's upcoming storyline can reinvigorate this series again. Read Full Review

    When we consider that the story of Jubilee accepting her vampirism has already been done better elsewhere, and the crossover which leads into it has been over for months, it's hard to see what made Gischler think this story was one which needed to be told. Perhaps we'll find out in future months. Unfortunately, when the best reason to read a story is so that you can understand the next one, you know it's on shaky ground. This issue does nothing to break that trend. Read Full Review
